How to Help Those in South Affected by Devastating Tornadoes
The Salvation Army asks people who want to help those affected by the deadly tornadoes in Mississippi and Alabama to visit www.salvationarmyusa.org or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
Monetary donations are needed to meet survivors’ most immediate needs. A $100 donation will feed a family of four for two days, provide two cases of drinking water and one household cleanup kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets and cleaning supplies.
The Salvation Army is currently not accepting donations of clothing and furniture for storm victims. Please forward these donations to The Salvation Army Family Store nearest you.
We are coordinating services with local and state authorities through the state Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Volunteers are asked to visit www.msema.gov to register as a volunteer.
Our teams continue to provide for physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of those who affected by these devastating storms. On Saturday, our Disaster Response teams served more than 830 hot meals and 450 snacks to residents and first responders in Mississippi.
